    The game wasn’t a thing of football beauty, but Nation Ford coach Michael Allen was all for the taking.

    He had to be.

    The Falcons, at Lancaster Memorial Stadium on Friday night, were in quest of their first win on the season and they went home victors with a tough 14-7 non-region win.

    “It’s a ‘W,’ ” said Allen after addressing his Falcons’ team.

    All the scoring came in the first half as the Falcons built their seven-point edge.

    INDIAN LAND – The Indian Land Warriors were back at home Friday night

    to face a familiar foe, the unbeaten Chesterfield Rams.

    The Warriors and Rams were in the same Class AA region just two years ago. The No. 7 Rams still looked the same, using their speed and Indian Land's mistakes, to bolt to a 20-0 lead seven minutes into the game.

    The Rams used big plays to pull away for a 48-25 win Friday night at the ILHS Reservation.

    Bishopville, was moved to Saturday, Sept. 16 after Lee Central was out

    The song remains the same in the early season for the Indian Land Warriors.

    Friday night, Indian Land went toe to toe with the host Broome Centurions, but

    ultimately succumbed, 27-16, thanks to their own mistakes, Broome’s running game, and the Centurion defense.

    Broome went three-and-out on their first drive, and things went

    from bad to worse for the Centurions.

  • AJ Vols’ McKittrick, Hinson...

    Two Andrew Jackson High School football players were saluted for their play in week two at the meeting of the Tri-County Football Coaches Association on Tuesday at the Towne Tavern Restaurant in Fort Mill.
    The Volunteers’ Jamie Hinson and Dalton McKittrick were honored for their play in AJ’s 19-14 home loss to Providence Day of Charlotte last Thursday.
    McKittrick was selected as the Class AAA-AA-A defensive lineman of the week with 10 tackles, including seven solos, and a sack.

  • LHS duo is trench tough

    Lancaster High senior defensive linemen Blake Payne and Rodrick Johnson are in the “step-up” mode at this point in the Bruins’ season.
    Payne, a two-year starter at defensive end, and Johnson, a four-year starter at tackle, had their roles enhanced with the loss of senior star Markees Watts with a season-ending ACL injury early in the Bruins’ opener with Indian Land.
    Lancaster won the game, but lost the star defender, a two-time Region III-AAAA and Tri-County Coaches Association Defensive Player of the Year.
